First, Jennifer Shafiq was killed by her parents, authorities say. Then her body was dumped by the side of the Long Island Expressway 17 years ago. And now, attorneys believe that federal investigators lost some of her remains.

Bones and teeth believed to belong to the 4-year-old girl, who was found 11 years ago buried in a shallow grave alongside the Long Island Expressway, have been lost, attorneys in the case against the child's parents said.

Khairual Abdul, 42, and her estranged husband, Parmjit Singh, 50, are charged with second-degree murder in the 1990 slaying of their daughter, Jennifer Shafiq. The girl's bones, along with a T-shirt that said "My heart belongs to Grandma," were discovered buried in Manorville in 1996.
